Collecting since 1994. Never wanted to pay the market prices for a lose Vinyl Cape Jawa. Now patience paid off, when this little fella popped up on ebay as a buy-it-now for € 300/£ 270 including the card with (correct) open bubble. As I had a code, I only paid € 285 /£ 255.
The last few days were a thrill - until it arrived today I could not be sure, if it was genuine. On the auction picture you could see absolutely nothing. But several parameters let me take the risk. Displays great and I think I won't ever come nearer to a VCJ MOC than this.

That's a great find and at the price that the AFA loose VCJ's were at for years.

Really good to hear stories like this, especially when they get into the right persons hands :D

That’s an amazing looking Jawa at an unbelievable price. Looks great, you can hardly tell it’s been opened. Congratulations!

It's a marathon this game, not a sprint.
